“Streets of Nashville”

This morning I was in your arms
It seems so long ago
These four wheels pulling us apart
But girl you need to know
Even when I’m in this city
A few states north of where you are
I know just where to find you
I don’t have to look too far

My mind is wandering
The streets of Nashville with you
In my head we’re hand in hand
Walking down the avenue
In my dreams you’re right beside me
Music city, Tennessee
And I’m wrapped around your finger
Right where I want to be
But that’s my imagination running loose
Tonight I’m wandering
The streets of Nashville with you

I go through all the motions
I pretend I ain’t alone
But each day’s getting longer
And I’m longing for my home
Cause home is where the heart is
And my heart is in your hands
Even though I can’t be with you
My memory still can

My mind is wandering
The streets of Nashville with you
In my head we’re hand in hand
Walking down the avenue
In my dreams you’re right beside me
Music city, Tennessee
And I’m wrapped around your finger
Right where I want to be
But that’s my imagination running loose
Tonight I’m wandering
The streets of Nashville with you

Separated by the state lines
But honey that won’t do
Miles won’t come between us
When your smile’s my rear view
It won’t be much longer
‘Till I’m back in paradise
But until I kiss your face again
All I do is close my eyes

And my mind is wandering
The streets of Nashville with you
In my head we’re hand in hand
Walking down the avenue
In my dreams you’re right beside me
Music city, Tennessee
And I’m wrapped around your finger
Right where I want to be
But that’s my imagination running loose
Tonight I’m wandering
The streets of Nashville with you
